Exploring the Western Caribbean

We are destination cruisers rather than loyalty cruisers. So we can compare the difference in cruise lines. We've sailed on Royal, Princess, Celebrity, Norwegian and Carnival. And this was a very nice cruise. It ...

We chose this cruise not for the ship but for the destination. Had to travel 3.5 hours from our home to Fort Lauderdale and we were nervous wrecks by the time we got there. Park & Go was GREAT! Extremely helpful and ...

Chose this cruise before the hurricanes, lost most of our ports with THEIR selections. Martinique was a total waste, they didn't even promote shore excursions or shopping, jus dumped you off on your own. St Lucia ...

Great itinerary but other RCI ships have better service

This ten day cruise went to St. Martin, Tortola, Dominica, Antigua and St. Kitts. We did locally purchased shore excursions, mostly from the taxi vans that wait outside the port gates. They were much cheaper than ...
